Women suffer burns in restaurant fire
A man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after two women suffered burns in a fire incident in a Tacoronte restaurant.
The fire brigade has confirmed the incident, during which two women received burns, but in a press release gave no suspected cause. However, a Spanish news-paper reported that it was started by some sort of petrol bomb. An investigation was immediately opened.
The emergency services rushed to the scene following a 1-1-2 call and the fire crews were able to put out the flames and ventilate the building.
SUC medical staff treated two women, one of them aged 50 who suffered serious burns and a 22-year-old whose burns were of a less serious nature. Both were then taken to hospital.
The local police and Guardia Civil also atended.
